Coming complete with its own fitted and dedicated box, this outstanding hair comb is set with three dark citrines, a bright yellow topaz, a dusty blue spinel and a deep red garnet. The ornament is cleverly affixed to the tortoiseshell comb with a fastener that can be unscrewed so it can be worn as a brooch. An over the top yet versatile piece. The dedication on the front of the leather box is stamped in gold and reads "R.M. 17.12.24."
